RFIDs on passports and privacy concerns


The idea of embedding radio frequency identification in passports is not being received well by the public commenters, to put it mildly. During the comment period that ran from February to April last year, people expressed all sorts of objections, mainly citing privacy issues. The irony, as Aaron Peterson points out, is that the comments are posted in their entirety, including contact information and full names: "So, way to go, thanks for addressing our privacy concerns by posting the personal information of everyone that had feedback on the subject," he says.
